Fucking returns

Posted by Mr Bingo (Creator)

This is just a quick update about book returns, so if you have received your book there's no need to read on, please continue doing whatever you're doing, and please don't send me a fucking message to let me know that everything's fine. Running a Kickstarter is like lying under a pile of bricks and every time I get a new message, it's like a new brick being placed on the pile, slowly squeezing the last bits of life out of me and pushing me nearer to my eventual kickstarter fuelled death.

So all copies were sent out in November last year. A fulfilment company in Derby helped me with this job, so they're also dealing with the returns. In the next 24 hours they're going to send me a full list of returned books. If your book has been returned I'll be in touch to let you know and it'll be sent out again in the next few days.

If your book hasn't been returned and it's still missing, I'll send you a replacement copy within the next 2 weeks. I'd love to give you a quicker timeframe than that but I'm afraid the numbers for this project are big, so everything takes a while!

Thanks for your patience... you will all get a book eventually, I promise!

      I've not received mine yet and also moved house - the new tenants claim there has been no post for me. They might be thieving bastards though...

      Hi mate, nothing for me yet either. I moved house in what seemed to be the vital 'don't-move-house-in-this-space-of-time' window. Cheers

      Hi! I also haven't yet received my book yet. Checking in because I also was away when it was delivered, so I guess it was sent back.

      Hi Mr. Bingo! I was travelling when my book was delivered and so it got returned before I could pick it up. I haven't received any news about a new copy being sent out yet, so I figured I'd check in here. Thanks!
